Patti Levinson

Divorce & Family Law

Not all divorces are created equal. I am committed to achieving successful results for my clients and work closely with them to determine the best path to reach the outcome they desire. One size does not fit all when it comes to family matters. I focus on my clients’ individual needs and circumstances, and offer alternatives to traditional litigation, such as divorce mediation or collaborative divorce, to achieve a more amicable resolution that benefits the entire family.
